    Red Bull is in our neck of the woods again! This time Red Bull Sound Select put together a nice line up of artists including Philly 360° Creative Ambassador Khari Mateen, Mike Taylor and Azealia Banks as the headliner for the show on Friday, July 26 at Voyeur. Red Bull continues to push boundaries and create their own lane in creative culture. This initiative boasts that it “celebrates local music and the people who push it forward.”

    I wanted to take the opportunity to give you a closer look into the artists that will be performing and if you haven’t claimed your free ticket already, sorry it’s too late.  

    Azealia Banks – Known to be outspoken, this New York native does not hold her tongue for anyone. Among the frontrunners of female emcees, Banks creates her own space with free flowing lyrics over high energy, bass thumping beats. Banks is said to be releasing her debut project Broke with Expensive Taste sometime soon and she has worked with some industry vets to put together music that will blow your mind.

    Khari Mateen – The multi-talented instrumentalist and producer has been showing us that he is just as comfortable in the limelight as he is behind the boards. From his intimate sunset performances to traveling across the country, Mateen is no doubt a one-man show. He sings, plays multiple instruments and captivates the audience. You can check out his EP on kharimateen.com.

    Mike Taylor – His sound is fun and unique. Infused with elements of Pop, rock, and soul Taylor’s music sounds like the soundtrack to a great teen movie, i.e. Ferris Bueller, just of today of course! His style is colorful and eclectic and I have had the opportunity to see him perform in Philadelphia before. You’re definitely in for an experience! His latest single “Downtown kids” is currently available on iTunes.
